Consultant Urological Surgeon
with a special interest in General Urology, Female Urology, Andrology and Reconstruction 

Applications are invited for a Consultant Urological Surgeon post at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. This is a new post to increase local service provision, comply with the seven day consultant-led services directive, and improve patient waiting times. The current Urology service is provided by five consultant urological surgeons, and provides comprehensive urological services for a population of approximately 650,000 in West Kent and East Sussex.

This post has clinical sessions at Maidstone Hospital and at the Tunbridge Wells Hospital in Pembury.  Subspecialisation is well established within the department, and the new appointee will be expected to complement the sub speciality interests of the existing consultants. Currently, radical cystectomy, prostatectomy and nephrectomy are carried out at the West Kent Urology Cancer Centre at the Medway Maritime Hospital, and although this post includes diagnostic work for cancer patients, and management of superficial bladder cancer, the new appointee would not be expected to perform radical cancer surgery.  A sub speciality interest in female urology and andrology would be ideal, but other sub specialty interests in paediatric urology, neurourology, or bladder Botox would also be an advantage. 

The successful applicants should be on the Specialist Register for urology, or be within six months of award of CCT at the time of interview.

Applicants are welcome to visit the department.  For informal discussions and more information, please contact Mr Mark Cynk, Lead Consultant Urological Surgeon, on 01622 225770 or email on or Lesley Baxte, AGM Surgical Specialties, on 0770 397 3030.
